Quote of the Week

Posted by Curtis Love on Wednesday, December 15, 2010, In : Quote of the week 
There is a time in everyone's education when he arrives at the conviction that envy is ignorance; imitation is suicide; that he must take himself for better or worse as his portion; that though the wide universe is full of good, no kernel of nourishing corn can come to him but through his toil bestowed on that plot of ground which is given to him to till.


-Ralph Waldo Emerson
